Fed Cup event can be moved from China to Kazakhstan
A Fed Cup event has had to be moved to Kazakhstan because of health scares caused by the lethal coronavirus in China, the International Tennis Federation said.
"The decision to move the event to a different venue was taken due to increasing travel restrictions in China at the present time and followed consultation with independent security advisors," the Star cited the statement as saying.
The Asia/Oceania Group I event was scheduled to take place from February 4-8 in China's Dongguan, but organisers have decided the health risk is too high. It will now take place on the same dates in Nur-Sultan in Kazakhstan instead.
